Free What ... ?

Having put the few thimbles full of diesel that I can still afford into the car, I went to pay. As I paid, the cashier said, "Do you want free sausage rolls?"

My ears pricked up. "Free" is my favourite four-letter, F-word.

I followed his pointing finger to a basket with the ticket stating, "Sausage Rolls - 3 for £1.00"

I was disappointed, but I remembered a discussion on the local BBC radio about whether spelling, syntax and pronunciation is important these days. Well, I guess this episode proves that it is!
